Epidemiologists seriously advise against licking boots at this time

-If police want to give you a fine and you don’t give your details, they’re likely to arrest you whether the fine is under the coronavirus legislation or not

3. UNDER WHAT POWER? Police sometimes rely on protesters not knowing the law. If police tell you to do something make sure you challenge them to act lawfully by asking ‘AM I LEGALLY OBLIGED TO?’ & ‘UNDER WHAT POWER?’

4. NO DUTY SOLICITOR! If you’re arrested never take the solicitor offered by the police- they may not know anything about protest & give bad advice. Instead we recommend asking for ITN 020 3909 8100 or HJA 0808 274 8226

5. NO CAUTION! A caution is an admission of guilt for an offence without police having to show evidence. Doesn’t sound like much but stays on your record & can impact employment. Best not to accept one, unless a trusted solicitor has specifically advised you to & explained why

Heading to the
demo in London or anywhere in England and Wales tomorrow? Know your rights & share these key messages!

1. NO COMMENT! You’re usually not required to answer police questions, so don’t. - Say ‘no comment’. This includes ‘friendly chats’, on the streets, in a police van & during interview. PLOs (officers in blue bibs) are trained intelligence gatherers - remember ‘NO COMMENT’

2. NO PERSONAL DETAILS! You DON’T legally have to give personal details when you’re being stopped & searched & you usually don’t need to give personal details to police anyway.

Exceptions:
- If you’re arrested many people choose to give their name, address, nationality & date of birth (no more than this) when they get to the custody desk (not before) as not giving this can delay release

- If you’re arrested & police demand your nationality you must give it (Policing & Crime Act 2017). Ask ‘UNDER WHAT POWER?’. This only applies after arrest, not on the streets

Unfortunately our friends at the GRASS squat in Holloway have been evicted this morning and are moving to a new location. (We’ll keep you updated about where they’ll set up next!)

It says a lot that a hub of mutual aid where so much good work helping people has been done is now evicted by bailiffs at a time when it’s needed most. Solidarity and Mutual Aid forever! 🏴

Just want to make it clear we are absolutely for the burning of police stations

Come join us for tonight's livestream at 20:00 BST!

In this episode we hear from friends involved in Foodhall Project (a community kitchen in Sheffield) and the National Food Service (a grassroots network across the UK with an aim of eliminating food insecurity). We will be hearing about the value of social eating spaces, how Foodhall and the NFS are tackling social isolation and food waste, and about the mutual aid they are currently involved in. The speakers will also touch on the organising models used within Foodhall and the NFS, and how the aims of the projects fit into wider environmental and anti-capitalist movements. greenanticapitalist.org/event/

Join the Online Day of Action on Tuesday 26th May and take a stand in solidarity with the Wet'suwet'en nation!

Despite the COVID-19 global pandemic, international solidarity calls for an end to all construction, and an eviction notice by Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs, CGL and RCMP continue to illegally occupy sovereign Wet'suwet'en yintah. Their presence on the territory puts communities at risk; endangers Indigenous womxn, two-spirit, and non-binary people with the building of man camps along the pipeline route; and threatens land, water, climate, and air.

AIMCo, a public pension fund manager in so-called Alberta, is set to finalize a deal with TC Energy at the end of this month to purchase a 65% share in Coastal GasLink pipeline alongside U.S. based investment firm KKR. Now is the time to tell AIMCo we are watching their investment in violent, colonial structures! Here's how you take action today and let AIMCo know loud and clear: This pipeline will never be built!

It would be terrible if we replaced all currency with seeds because then people would just cheat the system by going out and planting loads of trees and plants in order to acquire even more seeds! That's just bad economics 🤷‍♂️

How does the Coronavirus relate to the climate crisis and the structure of our society? Bookchin’s works provide a framework we can use to analyse how state-capitalism and the ‘legacy of domination’ create the conditions for a global pandemic, and our inability to properly respond. Join GAF for a discussion on dialectical naturalism, social ecology, and the domination of nature in the context of the Covid-19 crisis.
